This has been a relatively low cost car to own. It gets 30+ mpg when driven normally. The smaller engine makes it tough especially when the car looses quite a bit of speed when climbing hills. It just keeps going. Ours has 183k miles and a cousin has one with 250k miles.
low cost of ownership.
Nissan was smart to put a larger engine into the newer sentra's. The lack of power/torque is a major deficit.
